It’s another great day to be together

When the beer is cold and the pits are hot, people tend to gather. That’s a truth as old as time, and one that’s near and dear to our hearts. Grab a friend, a beer, and a seat, and join us in celebrating the power of fire and time in the most authentic way possible.

The bbq was excellent, and the service was warm and welcoming... I am confident that this one is among the best.

The combo had me happier than a pig in you-know-what. Nearby my partner-in-crime gnawed on his pork ribs and, between bites, exclaimed how juicy and succulent they were. I had to rip a rib out of his hands to try a bite before they were gone.

The best smokehouse in Salinas, no question!

Really the best for our wedding. Easy buffet style. Minimal cost and great quality food. Plus my now husband really wanted to see me eat some ribs in my wedding dress. Haha. Even as the bride I went back for seconds.
